The Courier-Journal reports that “Kentucky ranks 19th in higher ed spending!”
The Courier references a report from Wall Street 24/7 that shows Kentucky’s annual higher ed. spending per student is $6,898.
The highest spending state is Wyoming, with annual higher ed. spending per student of $17,300.
The lowest spending state is New Hampshire with annual higher ed. spending per student of $2,591. Some other surprise low-spenders also come from the Northeast. They include Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
Imagine that – “Blue States” putting up a lot less support for their colleges than Kentucky.
